Person That You Really See --> My first song NOW ONLINE

Well I finally finished my first demo! It's a song I wrote myself... both music as lyrics... And thanks to very talented musician Franky de Mangelaere it became alive! He taught me how to write a song and he recorded both keys as guitar. A true blessing! You can listen to it on my MySpace profile: http://www.myspace.com/intipop

Bless you!

Voice Range Profile

If you perform a voice analysis (laryngoscopy) they may want to check your voice range profile. To do this you'll have to produce all the notes of your range (from lowest to highest) on all the volumes you are able to produce this note (from loudest to most quiet). You produce the sound in a mic and it all gets registered by a computer program. The result is a chart with your notes (in Hz) on the X-axis, and the volume (in dB) on the Y-axis.

Here below you can see an example of such a profile. It's made in 'normal' circumstances. This means you do not prepare your voice before doing this, it's a range you should be able to attempt at any time of the day. And oh well yeah... this profile is mine ;-)

Review of Rosie Pearl's concert by Stijn Terrie (Nieuwsblad)

Last Friday we could enjoy Lorenzo Luca's en Rosie Pearl's concert @ ICC Ghent. 700 fans attended this show! And so did the newspapers... Flemish newspaper 'Het Nieuwsblad' wrote a very positive article about the concert. To read the beautiful words, please click: http://nieuwsblad.typepad.com/gent/2008/09/een-nieuw-pare...

It kinda means you were wrong by not being there... ;-)

Your favourite music linked to the employee that you are...

Dear readers!

I found this very interesting article about a scientifical research that wanted to link someone's favourite style of music to the type of employee that you are. I do not know if it's a research of many meanings, but... It's kinda fun to read it! The article is in Dutch though...

Laryngoscopy

Hi there!

Some of you might know I work in a hospital. One of the advantages of working in a hospital (ok, maybe the only advantage, but it's an important one...) is you can have free consultations. Ever since the day I've been working there I had to try and do everything to please the doctors, so now I think it's about time they pleased me. So I was thinking that maybe my scientifical career might come in handy for my musical career. So I started to do some research to find a doctor who could check out my vocal cords... And I found one! Dear Prof. Dr. Olaf Michel was the lucky one to have a close look at my beloved cords :-) I wrote down my experience for the singers among us, or for those who'd just like to know how they test your voice box. After all... the procedure is exactly the same for patients who diagnose throat hoarseness or other voice problems, including cancer of the voice box (larynx).

I arrived at consultation where the doctor asked me some questions about cough, hoarseness, breathing etc... With a little mirror he looked right into my nose to have a little check. After that he performed indirect laryngoscopy. This means the doctor holds a mirror at the back of the throat. Meanwhile he had a very funny hat on with a big light attached to make sure he could have a proper look into my throat. Then he took me into a dark room, it almost looked like an OR. He said he'd perform direct fiber-optic laryngoscopy. I didn't like the sound of that and I knew he'd do it, but ah well... you have to pass this for better diagnosis.

So I lie down on this very confortable bed. I can see a big TV where they'd watch the view of the camera they were about to shove down my head. I was still in a pretty good mood and asked the doctor if I could watch along. So the doctor asked his assistant to move the TV to a place where I could watch too. I really liked this gesture, I must admit the doctor was a real nice guy. Then the doctor took a small flexible fiberoptic scope. He put the scope into my nose and very gently he shoved the scope deeper and deeper down into it. It wasn't painful, I just felt a little pressure and tiny bit ache on the inside of my nose, but since he put anesthetic paste on the scope it didn't hurt much. As he continued sliding the scope it finally arrived into my throath and my vocal cords were visible on the screen! I almost felt like a pregnant mother who saw her unborn child for the first time during echography :-) Anyways... although the experience wasn't painful and even a bit magical... It wasn't a very nice one... The feeling you have while you can feel the tubings in the middle of your head was an ackward and very unpleasant one. My eyes spontaneously started to cry and after a while I started retching. I suddenly felt very unconfortable and I saw flashes of the famous 'Ludovico Treatment'-scene of the film 'A Clockwork Orange'. All I wanted at that moment is the doctor to pull those darn wires out of my throat! After a while he did... Pfew...

And what was the result? At first sight my cords seemed to be fine. No dysfunctions, no abnormalities... My vocal cords are in good shape! I was very pleased to hear that! Guess I must thank my vocal coaches for learning me how to use my voice well :-) The only remark he had was the fact that my nose was very small (hell yeah... didn't need to say that... I felt the scope good enough to know that...). It could cause dry throat and sometimes sore throat (indeed... a common feeling I have when I wake up...), but after all no problems that cannot be fixed with some physiological solutions and nose strips :-)

In 2 weeks I have an appointment with the neurolinguist. He'll be checking the vibrations of my cords. I won't say I'm looking forward to it, but I am very curious about it. And of course... I'll explain you everything :-)))

Never give up!

Dear readers... Omg... sounds like I'm writing in a diary I've never had :-) But ah well... Nothing's wrong with being polite I guess!

I wanted to write something special today. Because last week I've experienced something great. You know that feeling you get when you get tired of fighting? When you think that all efforts you do seem worthless? Well, I guess then you know how I must have felt like the last few months.

Ever since I began singing I've been struggling with some problems a singer can encounter: nerves, lack of focus, breath... but especially a wrong pitch. Some performances I did were bad, some of them were ok, but never ever I managed to perform with a controlled pitch. This has been a big frustration since no matter how well you do on stage... It never really sounds right with the wrong pitch. Lately this has really been bugging me! Coz I done like so many exercises, and when it finally started to work at home, at ease behind my piano, I still messed it up on stage.

Last Oldskool Jam I did was a big disaster: wrong song, wrong mood... louzy performance. I felt like I did the worst thing I've ever done on stage. Then in April I went to camp with the singing school and during rehearsals I felt physically bad. I felt like nothing in my body was going the right direction to express each single note the way I wanted. And that was it... After that feeling I started changing my way of studying and I started looking for some causes.

I do not know if that was the right thing to do, nor do I know if it had a big influence on me. I can only say that the future will tell. But last Friday there was an Oldskool Jam again (shame on you if you weren't there), and feeling a bit low I did not have many expectations. Went to rehearsal, did pretty ok (not bad, but not ace either) and then I went back home. Studying my songs over and over again and waiting to get back to the Jam. Like I was doing a job or so... When I arrived my mood was pretty ok. But as I said... I felt like singing, but with no expectations at all. One way I was thinking I couldn't do worse than last time, on the other hand I was thinking... I cannot fail... I'm finally going to have to prove myself... Not only to me, but also to those who have never ever lost faith in me... especially to those who never lost faith in me there where most people have. So, I got on stage and I was bloody nervous. I wasn't thinking very much when I crawled on stage. Just felt my heart beating in my throat. Then the music started, I counted the beats, let the chords wave into my soul, opened my mouth and just started singing. At that certain moment I felt like everything made sense again. My body wasn't screaming inside, but it was full with harmony and a good feeling. I felt so at ease and all excited at the same time. And for the very first time... I sang the way I wanted to... And you cannot believe how I was enjoying every second I stood there...

Well, this is a long story... But all I wanted to say, is that you never ever should give up. Because suddenly, and mostly when you least expect it, you'll find the missing pieces of the puzzle. I know this was only a one time experience and I felt like something struck upon me. So, I'm still analyzing the cause and I really hope I'll find it! I have a big exam in June coming up that will tell me if my thoughts are right. I bloody well hope they are

Maybe you wonder why I always continued doing this... Well... I'm confessing... It's not because I hate myself so much I love punishing myself   No, the truth is... I love this... It's been a part of me since the day I was born and it has moulded me into the person I am today. And although the road often seemed to be blurry, and sometimes I'd rather have sold my vocal chords to the devil... deep inside I've always believed in myself. And now (maybe if it was only once, but of course I hope it's not) it finally showed off. So... Dear readers... Never stop listening to your inner voice, never stop believing in yourself, never stop working, working, working your ass off... Sooner or later, you WILL be rewarded... And now... That's a promise!!!

Feel your Larynx!

Here are some interesting tips about the larynx. I quoted it from 'Find Your Voice' by Jo Thompson:

"Put one hand on either side of your neck, in line with your Adam's Apple and gently move your larynx from side to side. It feels quite strange, as it is suspended from your hyoid or tongue bone."

 

"Rest your hands gently on your larynx. Sing a low note and join it to a high note. Does your larynx move up? I think you'll find it does."

Where to put your fingers on your guitar or piano

This one's not just for the singers, but also the guitar and piano players among us. The picture below shows us where to put your fingers on your guitar or piano for all kind of chords. I think this could be handy printing it out and put it just above your bed so you can do some memo exercises each day ;-) Ah well, or just a nice memory helper for one of those black-outs...
